If you’re showing contextual ads on your site – Do Not Block these Bots

Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo have bots that belong to their contextual ad programs.

These bots spider web pages to understand what the page is about so they can match appropriate advertising.

Block these bots (if you’re showing contextual ads on your site) and you will lose money.
